Modelling of the Texture Formation in Electro-Deposited Metal Films

  • D. Y. Li (a1) and J. A. Szpunar (a1)
Abstract
ABSTRACT

The texture formation during the electrodeposition process was simulated using a Monte Carlo technique. The simulation uses a two dimensional hexagonal lattice to map the microstructure of the deposit. The criteria for the texture formation was based on the minimization of the system’s free energy. The anisotropy of surface-energy was taken into account. Since a metal’s surface energy is influenced by hydrogen adsorption, the texture of metal deposits may vary with hydrogen co-deposition.
